    The basic answer is that you usually need to have the same number of control points in each sketch when doing a loft. When you use a circle, this is usually not a rule you need to follow, but it is in this case. I think you could solve the problem in other ways like using guide curves, or even a center-line, but these two methods should work as well. Give them a try.

    My SolidWorks models are 2016, so you won't be able to open them. The Step files should work.
